The Northeast Missouri Area Health Education Center (NEMO AHEC) was established in Macon, Missouri in 1989 in order to help reverse the decline in health care services, access, and opportunities for rural residents. NEMO AHEC strives to connect students to careers, professionals to communities, and communities to better health. We serve 21 counties throughout Northeast Missouri. NEMO AHEC helps students with career planning and provides various hands-on learning opportunities about healthcare careers. We also help place medical, nursing, and dental students with preceptors for rotations, as well as assist with various community outreach programs.
NEMO AHEC is affiliated with A.T. Still University’s AHEC Program Office, part of the Missouri AHEC network. The MAHEC network consists of three program offices and seven centers working together to meet our mission.
NEMO AHEC is proud to be an active member of the National AHEC Organization. The National AHEC Organization represents a network of more than 300 AHEC locations, serving more than 85% of counties across the United States.
